I’m Gidraph Mwangi, 24, built-in business acumen, entrepreneur, and founder of Havilah Dairy Farms. I am a Bachelor of Business Management graduate from Africa Nazarene University who considers himself a change-agent, seeking to empower the society through everyday actions.
DairyLink Software is a comprehensive online dairy farm management record.
The software records daily production of the cows. With three columns, the software gives farmers who milk twice or thrice daily, the opportunity to record production of each cow, in a timely and accurate manner. This is critical in that the farmer will know the amount in litres he gets, then he can budget for his income. Also, this will help prospective buyers who will know the cow’s potential before purchase.
The software has growth charts to guide dairy farmers on the progress of his/her livestock as he can record weight against the age of the cow. This will be important, as the farmer will be able to know milestones of the animal, such as when it attains weight for insemination. In addition, the software will provide mineral and nutritional requirements at every stage, from birth to maturity.
DairyLink Software provides a bulk messaging system, which will be linked to all farmers subscribed to the SMS system, for live updates and reminders on various aspects of their farms. This will include extension officers visiting their areas and dairy training.
Through linking with mobile money service providers, the farmers will get payments directly into their phone accounts for accountability. This will be linked with the suppliers such that milk delivered is recorded in the system and paid on time directly to the farmers thus eliminating middlemen and saving farmers costs.
Additionally, the software provides monthly statements of financial performance.
DairyLink records veterinary visits as well as medications given to every cow. This will help farmers in maintaining their herd in a healthy manner such that when illnesses are treated all the medications are recorded, the veterinary who issued them, as well as batch numbers of the drugs. These records will bring an end to instances where farmers are given expired drugs.
The software maintains a database of call-away veterinarians. This helps farmers who have emergencies in their farms reach veterinarians urgently, saving the situation or life of the animal.
The software records artificial insemination and breeding records, and the dates and time of the insemination. We at Farm Link connect farmers with professional veterinary doctors who have quality semen in their database linked to the software.
Moreover, the system gives a reminder to Farmers 24 hours before an event, such as the next time a cow goes on heat in relation to past heat, so that the farmer is aware and can plan with the inseminators.
First, I’m motivated to be an agent of change in society. Fellow youngsters further motivate me and ambitious farmers who want to set the record straight.
I’m also motivated by my past mistakes. Mistakes of buying dairy cows without records. Mistakes which I will forever cherish for having brought me to this idea that will help fellow young farmers get value for what they buy as well as take care of what we’ve bought.
Many young farmers are investing their hard-earned money buying dairy cattle without health records, production records, and even breeding records at astronomical prices.
Records will help farmers make the right decisions before purchasing a cow. The same records will help farmers manage their herds in a healthy and profitable manner.
I have teamed up with an IT expert and together we will develop the software. With the help of an experienced veterinarian, we have been able to put down on paper all the different records necessary to a dairy farm.
So far, the system exists on paper as we make an interface of the whole system to run on phones and desktops.
Success indicators for this project are:
- Number of dairy farmers who purchase and use the software.
- Number of reviews from users. The higher the reviews the greater the impact we know we have and improvements we have to make.
USD 2,000 will be used to develop the software to completion. A world-class software that will supersede local and regional boundaries.
USD 500 will be allocated to test, make improvements and work on reviews from our customers.
USD 1,000 will be used to brand and market the software to farmers.
USD 1,000 will go to launching the software and making it accessible to all farmers. Training and after-sale services.
USD 500 will go to unforeseeable eventualities as well as an emergency account to cater for miscellaneous expenses.

mwangi This is a fantastic initiative, Kindly let me know when you kick start it I mobilize my Area to join. Good innovation.
We are approaching that stage Ben. Let’s have our gloves on. Cheers.
This is a mazing and taking you far. It’s new technology inthe market and it’s helping farmers get prompt payment due to well kept record through the system. The banks are introducing more or less the same module called “weight capture” that keeps the record of produce from the farmers in the system. Go ahead and think of other things that farmers grow like maize,tea etc coz the same technology will do that too.Going far Gidraph!!!
Thanks for the innovation.
Keep up the good work Gidraf, we really need young energetic guys like you . Contact me for more assistance. God bless
Gidraph is absolutely going to change how dairy farming is view especially by the youth.
Mwangi junior.Good work.It is an opener to youth to do farming as business in the local environment and eradicate poverty.
That’s a great idea hope that you wil motivate the young and also they wil reap from it
Thanks Eric Mwangi
Very inspiring keep up the good work
This software has every potential to advance dairy enterprise.Record keeping is one of the biggest chat dairy farmers. This software provides a great opportunity for me to benefit as a dairy farmer as well as all dairy farmers.
The bottom line in dairy decision making remains only on accurate records and this software offers it with a great deal of easy.
The secret to a profitable farming venture is records. The essence of records can never be overstated.
Wao great idea worth scaling up
Good marketing idea!
I agree with you Gordon.
yes off course the software will redefine the dairy art
Absolutely, dairy is an art and record keeping is the science.
The software is a game changer.
Thanks Jane for the support.
This is a true game changer – esp for telephone farmers!
Telephone farmers will have this software to thank once it’s launched. Reviews will be collected from farmers in the diaspora as well as on-ground farmers.
Surely a much needed innovation
Its a great innovation to dairy farmers.Sucess on your launching #148/gidraphmwangi
Great tool, I would love this tool. Am in diaspora and it can be helpful in tracking what is going on in the farm.
Teresa, personally I have a sister who also does dairy farming and is in the diaspora. I have seen her struggle with records and she is part of my motivation to have a software that will surpass local boundaries and be trusted beyond boundaries.
This should harness the all the data and analyse it for productivity and maximum efficiency.
The only tool we can use to analyse productivity and efficiency of our farm operations are accurate records. Cheers
We need this proposed before our county Governmnts ministry of Agriculture to create awareness and pull farmers to this noble idea of record keeping.You have my support and il be a sure consumer of these intellectual services
Thanks Ndege. I appreciate your support greatly. Farmers must get goodwill from the government and such ideas should supplement their efforts of making the country food secure.
These is great as it will modernize dairy farming business.

We cannot overstate the importance of Agriculture to the African continent. We will continue to provide innovative solutions to improve farming.
Love the idea man i will spread the word to my costomers and friend,this will reduce losses to farmers who have taken advantage by middlemen…..keep it real.
We must eliminate middlemen and the so called brokers in the farming field.
Farmers loose hundreds of liters yearly due to lack of access to information and proper aid to give them the best from their flock… this could be a life saver… Good luck my brother.
We must save every liter produced. Increase output and keep farmers informed.
on point ideas , very well stated.
Thanks Vero. Much appreciated

I am glad to see how you are approaching modern means of farming. The software is a great tool. With such initiatives I am certain we are taking dairy farming to the next advance levels.
We continously looking for ways to improve on old farming systems.
Thanks Nyanje wa Nyanje.
I Love anything to do with food and feeding. Agriculture is one of the most important industries without it no one would survive. We can’t go without a meal for a day.
On the other hand, technology is at the core of every business now. Integrating both agricultural and advances in technology should be encouraged.
All the best Gidraph. As a dairy farmer in Zambia am Looking forward to the development of the software.
Thanks Sir. Levy
Working on a software that will surpass local, regional and international boundaries. Food crisis is a global phenomena and we must work together or perish of hunger.

Well thought idea,New beginning for the dairy farmers
Records are a sure way to advance farming and give hope to farmers Patrick. Thanks.
I novation at its best Patrick
Mwangi this is an incredibly phenomenal idea and indeed the software can exponentially increase the yields. What fails many is the inability to capture and maintain records and since this is a strength of the software then you got it right and yes farmers will consequently get it right. Thumbs for the innovative idea.
As an accountant, you will come in handy in teaching farmers on the importance of records.
Much appreciated Sir..
Job accounting for farmers is very necessary. Their should be specialists in this field.
Way to go Gidd!!!..surely this will bring positive changes in the dairy industry and to the farmers in Kenya/Africa
Farmers will have this great software to thank once it’s up and running.
good initiative, when launched, I will be among the first people to buy the software. good job
Skaymash kindly leave your contacts and will notify you once it’s up and running.
Same here Skaymash. All dairy farmers must have this software in their farm phones.
Team kujiamini,,,God is real tuko nyuma yako
Sure Brother Eric.
Will keep you in touch with the developments as they come.
A much needed innovation!!!
It’s time has come.
great stuff Gidraph
Michael Chifodya thanks bro.

This is a brilliant initiative, Gidraph!
I hope you will be able to get the support that you need. Also it will be nice if your government will get on board, seeing as how this will benefit the country a great deal. We all know how important/crucial agriculture is to our East African countries.
I’m very proud of you brother and I hope once you have this running you’ll consider expanding/sharing with your amazing neighbours, such as the beautiful Tanzania 🙂
We will bring more and more stakeholders on board including the government. Farming is a key player to the economy and thus must be supported from all angles.
This is such a brilliant idea.All the best and may God bless your work.
Very much appreciated.
I think its a great initiative with potential and a prosperous future I wish we all thought like this we would not dread about our futures good job_

Innovation will never stop impressing brilliant minds.
We honestly need such brains for today and for the future. Food is a basic need and we can never do without it. We must therefore attain self sufficiency and this is one way of getting there.
Agribusiness driven technology is a sure way to turn the tide in the farms and achieving not only income but food security in Africa.
This is great brilliant idea…
Moving from just an idea to a solution for today and the future.
Wooow wonderful. As a person who believes in farming i will look for u

This a great idea that needs the support of all of us. I hope that this application will be able to be replicated throughout the other agricultural spheres ie poultry, apiary, fish farming etc
Yes with time we will come up with softwares for different areas in agriculture.
At the moment we want to bring a change in the dairy industry then spread our wings all over r
Great idea…this will improve farming …its about time someone came up with an innovative plan for farmers….keep it up…
Innovation is the way to go, especially in an economy like Kenya’s where youths need to be creative, Gidraph I love this idea, hope it sails through because it will help a lot of farmers and it’ll also be an inspiration to so many young people who do have the knowledge but do not have a way of applying it, all the best!
Kasina, creativity and innovation will be the next Frontier especially now that we need to embrace technology in farming.
Youths need to think outside the box and provide solutions in different areas.
Truly a game changer👍🏼👍🏼
Kadagaya game changer in the dairy industry.
brilliant mind..I’m very impressed
Charity very much appreciated
This is a good innovation. Also remember to include the feed intake and specific rations being taken by the cows.
Absolutely Yvonne. It’s already part of the software We take a very keen interest on the rations.
Thanks for the support.

I enjoy reading your innovation idea… I hope you get all the support you deserve.
By God’s grace it will be sponsored.
Mwangi, what a brilliant idea. I really like your idea. It will be a great tool for the farmers and prospective farmers. This is what has been lacking in farming and your idea is the answer. Keep it up bro!
Thanks Peris. As a farmer I understand the problems we encounter as well as trying to come with the solutions necessary.
Keep on going mwangi very promising idea
Thanks Beatrice for the support and comment.
Embracing technology is the way to go for farmers to work ‘smarter’. In your upcoming software, did you include the tracking of the stolen cow?
At the moment we don’t have that in the software, but we have grateful room from inclusions and adjustments.
Thanks for the comment.
Intriguing and motivating. We need more of this in the world. People with a passion to think outside the box and a desire to make a difference. The Agriculture Sector is one of the fast growing sectors in the World. With the hunger n poverty crisis, it’s only wise to invest in this sector. Impressive and keep.it up!
An investment in agriculture is an investment in the future. We cannot go wrong with farming.
Good stuff that will accelerate benchmarking, business analysis, individual cow performance and hopefully it will also be an invaluable tool for any potential buyers of cattle in the future. Keep it up.
Absolutely true. Records are an indispensable tool for benchmarking, analysis and performance analysis.
Thanks for the comment.
this is very good. However, l expected important sections like expenditure / time to be summarized either in Graff or column forms.
All farm expenditures will be summarized and give monthly reports.
brilliant idea Steve.Am sure you have seen my struggle ,Mobile farming is not easy at all .Proper record keeping is very important in this day and age.
Yes Lucy. Your struggle has been real. Mobile farmers will be able to monitor their farms greatly.
Congratulations brother, being a daily farmer, these happens to be the best project too good to be true best wishes, I’ll be the first to buy your software
I will surely give dairy farmers the best software in the market. They deserve it.
Great .best of luck
This is the best software to have in the universe
Sure Njoki. The software with a dairy farmers touch.
Great idea Steve!!! Keep it up.
A brilliant idea whose time has come!
As a dairy farmer I wish to see this software finally working given the enormous benefits it will bring to the dairy farmers.
Wishing you the best as we wait for this revolution in dairy.
This is a revolutionary approach to record keeping and the benefits of it cannot be overstated. Many farmers will find this software easy to use and very useful at a low cost.
Gud work bro, looking forward to see your end products.
Hi Eric, The end product is coming soon.
Fellow leader, beautiful idea that must be supported to full implementation. I am really interested, kindly get in touch.
Kinuthia I will get in touch with you once we are through with this first stage. Having worked with you, I can never understate your words.
The idea will see light of day soon.
Great work Gidraph,keep up with that same spirit.
I will Liz Beth.
I love it makes work easy for management of a farm
Sure Peter. Farm management problems will be a thing of the past.
your innovation sounds brilliant!
kindly count me in among the first to use your services once you go commercial.
We need more people like you in our midst.
In addition to all the benefits that will be brought about by the wonderful innovations like yours,
I would support any idea to eleminate the middlemen/brokers who are in my opinion are like blood sucking ticks who drain farmers of almost, if not all their profits. well done Mwangi.
Main threat to development of Agriculture is middlemen and brokers. I believe farmers can get direct marketing for their produce. A farmer must get paid for his produce and minimize losses through unscrupulous brokers.
Brilliant brilliant idea ! You have the potential to do it small Bro ! I see you pushing till it happens ! Go Steve You shall make it! God is with you. Count on my support .
This is gonna happen siz. In God we Trust.
Such great minds from a great person. This project is such an innovation. Not only to our country but to the whole world. Congrats Giddy!!!!!
This is an innovation for the whole world to marvel at. We have the potential to develop global solutions.
Great initiative for a great development and sustainable agricultural impact
Sustainability is an outcome of productivity and profitability. We can’t achieve this without records.
Brilliant idea, I have to admit. This will help a lot especially livestock farmers in remote areas. I love it.
Rural farmers are the big chunk of dairy producers. We need to bring technology to them and see productivity shoot up.
Great initiative Mwangi. Good luck with your team.
We are ready to help Farmers.
This is a great idea which will help our farmers grow. Count on me to market the product and be a pioneer/ambassador. Local solutions made out of our own great minds,just Brilliant.
I know I can always count on your support. Local solutions for local problems to achieve global competitiveness.
Keep up the good work. Kudos
Thank you Waithera.
Innovative mind here.This will bring about a positive transition in the agricultural sector.Proud of you Bro. Nakuru county is proud to have such a brilliant mind that aspires to change positively the lives of farmers beyond boarders.You’ll go far Steve!
Transformational leadership is in deeds and not words. I hope more and more people would come forth to design and implement solutions for the community and the world would be a better place.
Nakuru County farmers will be lucky to have a software that will change their fortunes in the dairy industry.
This is a step towards effective farm management . Wishing you all the best bro
The expertise of effective farm management is synchronised in this software. It will bring change to how farmers effectively manage farms.

Good idea, great thinking, So many farmers treat their cows like pets and they end up living poor. Proper real time records would open up their eyes when they are on non profitable business. For more input on your idea, contact me.
Sure, records give a measure of how good a farm is operating. Many farmers make losses and end up not knowing.
This will be the best thing to all dairy farmers..the joy … no more middle men .Good job.we are waiting..
